Everything Old Is New Again

Popular culture dictates that fashion is cyclical and most fads only go into hibernation to reappear at a later date.  Clothing, music, television, movies, it doesn't matter...do a quick view of what's "in" today and you'll get a heavy dose of the 1980s & 90s.  Heck, I saw folks from Beverly Hills 90210 in an Old Navy commerical the other day...uhh...not...that...ummm...I ever watched...that show...or uhhhh...tight rolled my...uhhh...jeans....


Fly fishing isn't immune to this phenomenon.  Rod makers are making brand new rods behave like old ones, there's a renaissance of older rod building materials (thanks Cam), PBR & trucker hats are everywhere, heck, even my beloved tenkara can be viewed as a "throwback" of sorts.

So what's the next fishing trend for 2013?  Clearly, Goat hats...


Hey Orvis, either get on board or get left behind.
Remember, you heard it here first.

  6. I just spent all morning looking for my goat hat. I think we sold it in a yard sale last year. Just my luck. Dern.
